2013 Lackey Shiraz

I last tried the 2012 Vintage of this wine and enjoyed it. This one is dark in color with a nice nose of black berries. On the mid palate the wine displays some nice black berries and blue berries. On the medium length finish the wine displays some nice pepper and tannins. This is a well made fruit forward, drink now style, classic Aussie Shiraz. Very nice. I would give it an 88 or so.

From the LCBO web site:
